Guinataang Kuhol

Sep 23, 2009



Being a Batanggenya, I love anything cooked in coconut milk. I especially love Guinataang Kuhol, but I don't know how to cook it. So last weekend, when I saw my mother-in-law washing these kuhol she bought, I immediately grabbed my camera to document and learn how to cook Guinataang Kuhol.

Below is the complete step by step illustrated guide on how to cook it.




The first step in cooking this dish is to break the bottom of the shells using a knife handle or a hammer. Then, wash thoroughly until all the sediments are gone and the water is clear. Then heat the coconut milk with ginger, garlic and onion and bring to a boil. Put the Kuhol and let boil for 2 minutes. Then put the malunggay leaves (you can also use Kangkong) to the boiling pot and simmer for 1 minute. Then serve hot with rice.

I wanted to put chilies but my mother in law said the kids wont be able to eat it. So we just dipped the Kuhol to a mixture of vinegar, onions, pepper and chilies. It was delicious!

    panalo 'to! medyo exotic ito para sa mga manilenyo at manilenya. pero para sa aming mga probinsiyano, yummy yummy ang ginataang kuhol.

    I remember my father when I read this post. He loves to come back to gerry's grill just to get back at the ginataang kuhol that they serve.

    wow. naalala ko yan nagluto kame sa school. I don't eat tahong kaya ayoko din kumain nyan. kaso shempre tinakot kame ng teacher, bagsak daw pag di kinain ung niluto. I had to taste it first, since ako ung leader. daya talga ng mga classmates ko.

    eew.. lasang lupa at putik na di ko maintindihan. dpende siguro kung san galing ung kuhol no? sa probinsya kse galing sa parang river so alam mo kung fresh or not diba? waaah! hehehe
